The Borough of Surrey Heath is diverse and in addition to urban locations and Camberley Town Centre contains countryside and rural settlements, conservation areas, Green Belt land and sites of nature conservation such as the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area. You will need to be able to weigh up the competing demands of different interests, securing sustainable development which meets social and economic needs, but which also protects and enhances our environment.

Other important areas of work include regeneration of Camberley Town Centre, review of Community Infrastructure Levy, Special Protection Area mitigation, and a number of emerging Neighbourhood Plans.

The successful applicant will need to demonstrate strong commitment, be a polished communicator and be able to lead and manage effectively. The post holder must be able to represent the Council at all levels of government and with key partner organisations and be politically aware.

Applicants will need to be Chartered Town Planners.
